IT, the corporate digital core and their supporting infrastructure, have become central to corporate success, and will only continue to grow in importance. IT systems, especially in manufacturing and distribution organizations, need to support key requirements like the continuing digitization, the resulting need for Big Data platforms, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The complexities of the evolving economy and logistics networks place high demands on the supply chain and associated IT systems. The system architectures of tomorrow will be fundamentally different, to cope with the increasing complexity of supply chain processes and the exponential growth of events, transactions and data.
To address these challenges, future supply chain IT systems will have to be highly scalable, process massive amounts of data in near real time, and leverage Big Data technology to support cross-platform data sharing and advanced analytics.
To address these challenges, SAP has redesigned their system architecture, starting with the database – one of the critical enabling technologies for corporate IT systems.
SAP HANA (high-performance analytic appliance) is an application that uses in-memory database technology to allow the processing of massive amounts of data in near real time. This allows the application to provide instantaneous results and data-driven insights throughout the business.
The next-generation ERP business suite SAP S/4HANA leverages this advanced database technology, to become the new digital core of your business. The suite’s feature set extends well beyond traditional ERP capabilities, while providing advanced analytics capabilities and simplifying data structures to improve performance.
Körber Supply Chain is strategically oriented toward SAP S/4HANA. We are highly experienced in implementing the SAP Supply Chain Logistics suite, including SAP EWM and SAP TM, and in seamlessly integrating it with S/4HANA. We can also help you migrate your current logistics solution to the SAP S/4HANA environment.
Fiori was developed to empower developers to create an intuitive, streamlined and consistent user experience (UX) for SAP solutions. To that end, SAP Fiori provides a set of applications that serve the most common SAP business functions, such as workflow approvals and information lookups.
